Whilst Brighton is lovely most of the time, no one wants to play sardines on a hot weekend. The Beach at Rottingdean is just beyond the Brighton Marina, it provides many distractions for kids! There are plenty of Beaches in Sussex but make sure you give Rottingdean a visit as it is very different from the rest.
With a long walk concrete walkway to Brighton, there is plenty of room on the pebbled beaches to find your own spot to relax. Rottingdean beach is perfect for crabbing. As the tide goes out there are lots of rock pools to look around and see what creatures you can find! Go armed with your buckets, spades and sea shoes.
Take a look at Saltdean Beach which is located within a 5 minute drive from Rottingdean Beach. You can also walk to Saltdean Beach!
